What's on

Sunday 25th June 2017, 2:30pm

A Story of Early Music

Winterbourne Medieval Barn

2.30pm – 4.30pm

A story of music and medieval instruments, suitable for all ages.

Top musicians Tom Harrison, Sophie Creaner, Elisabeth Flett take you on a light-hearted historical journey with their period instruments.

You will have seen medieval paintings of angels playing long trumpets and huge recorders, or village bands with curved horns and bagpipes, but what did these old instruments actually sound like? Well, we certainly can't promise any angels, but this fun afternoon performance will give you an idea of the kind of music that would have been heard hundreds of years ago before king Henry VIII started chopping off heads or King Charles I lost his own.

Talented multi-instrumentalists Tom Harrison, Sophie Creaner, and Elisabeth Flett studied together at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. While their professional engagements now cover a wide range of musical styles from folk and jazz to musical theatre and orchestral work, they all share a passion for historical performance and re-creating some of the sounds of the past.

Enjoy the sounds of the late medieval and renaissance period in the perfect setting of the Medieval Barn, and see how musical instruments have changed.

Children are welcome to bring their recorders along and take part.

The grounds will open from 1.00pm so why not bring a picnic to enjoy before the performance in the Barn.

Drinks will be available to purchase before the performance and during the interval.

Tickets : Adults £10.00. Children under 16yrs - £5:00
